The Fanboy Problem

The Nerd Filter discusses the problem with fanboys. From Call of Duty, to Battlefield 3, we see them everywhere reeking havoc. (PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I hate fanboys bunch of idiots just play the damn games that is what there made for who cares who better PS3 and 360=same damn thing

they make me giggles ^_^
but sometimes they are too dense.
guitarded77  +   969d ago
Yeah... I usually get a good laugh at their expense, but sometimes they are just stupid.

It's funny that an article like this is here on N4G considering this site is filled with Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo fanboys.
jcnba28  +   969d ago
Nah, just sony fanboys.
Haules  +   969d ago
There does seem to be a lot of them, but there are tons of MS and Nintendo fanboys as well. If you check out the 360/720 articles and the Wii/WiiU/DS articles, you'll see them.

Fanboys aren't gamers, gamers love games and don't give a shit where they come from, fanboys are just fucking morons that deserve to have their reproductive organs removed because no one that narrow minded and ignorant is suitable to raise children.

The only things that I hate about fanboys are:
1)The hypocrisies
2)you cant have an intelligent conversation with them

Achievements were stupid, until trophies "changed" the game

I hate 360's curved triggers and love the straight triggers of the ps3. The ps4 (curved) triggers look like the best ever.

Motion controls suck. I love the kinect.

.............. the argument is 2 vs 1. I could put another Microsoft fanboy comment on there if it would make you happier, which is sad in itself when you think about it.

Fanboy article on N4G.COM? LMFAO
This has to be the biggest fanboy site around. So fitting LOL

N4G isn't nearly as bad as other places. IGN is at an entirely different level.

@ venom06 (below)

Just read your comment after posting this... I absolutely agree.

IGN is pretty bad, however N4G.COM by far is the worst. Only Gamepro in it's hay day was worse.

We are all fanboys of something out there. Not necessarily just games/consoles. Brand loyalty is something every company fights tooth and nail for, and many people give them that.

The worst fanboys, imo, are Apple fanboys.
Software_Lover  +   969d ago
I will agree with the apple part, lol

@schlanz You jealous or something?
schlanz  +   963d ago
Jealous of overpriced, sterile, and passé products most popular with tweens and geriatrics? No, I should think not, sir.

I always find it funny when people trash Apple fans because I never see them. I do see people trashing Apple every chance they get. Who's worse Apple people or people that hate Apple? I believe it's the latter.

Well I sell smartphones for a living and its ridiculous the stuff apple fans convince themselves of in choosing a 2 year old iPhone 4 with just 8GB of memory over a great much newer and mid-range 4G LTE android for the same price (free)

Also when I hear people talking about getting a macbook and what they plan to do on it (email/web/word processing 99% of the time that's it) why the hell are you spending a $500-1000 premium for something a netbook could do? Simple; marketing, and a misguided feeling that having a apple product will somehow raise their status.

I will say that the iPad is still tops in its category but ONLY because the app store for the iPad is still pretty far ahead of play store. That gap has been greatly narrowed on the phone front but android has some ways to go with tablet app support.

Game of Thrones fanboy right here, gotta watch it as soon as possible. Don't think i've been this addicted to anything ever. (Maybe Buffy) Also finished reading all the books.
Sure has been a long week. :-(

when fanboy-ism is bad is when it comes to gaming sites that influence the sales of one franchise versus another... IGN is the most DIGUSTING CoD fanboy site in existence, in how every other day, theres some random (an lots of times useless) CoD video on their site. They instancely belittle any competition to CoD without acknowledging the actual issues with CoD (same pathetic engine, no dedicated servers, lag compensation, etc). IGN is worst example of fanboy-ism gone wrong.

It's not my fault, it's the other guy that's the real fanboy.
PopRocks359  +   969d ago
It's pretty difficult to find a brand that doesn't have a group of people with a larger sense of loyalty. That's really the way it is in this day and age. The issue is trying to find two of different fandoms in the same forum who will converse respectably. That tends to be rare, but thankfully not absent.

letting kids play pc or console games are not cool. the phone apps/games can help with thinking development motor skill's on the way to the store or traveling but to have a kid sit down looking at a screen. naaaa bad new's it's why some of the fan boys are so dedicated parents sat them down in front of games charter became child hood friends sad real sad
